Hello to all and I am very glad to be here. I had uniserver 3.2 and 3.3 installed[a few times] including mysql running as a service. I deleted uniserver which is supposed to remove it,including mysql, and installed xampp for Windows.
When the installation got to installing mysql it said it detected mysql or something so I skipped that--I don't think it gave me the option to install it anyway. Long story short. I did not install mysql and I don't have it as far as I know. It does not start in the xampp control panel.
At this point I used the uninstaller for xampp and uninstalled xampp. Killed the control panel and deleted that folder. Think it is all gone and am ready for another try.
Really would like to get it right this time
How do I tell if I have mysql installed. It shows up in the services with this path--c:\UniServerX.X\usr\local\mysql\bin\mysqld-opt.exe MySQL. It does not exist. If I try to start it is says cannot find path--which is right.
Everything went smooth except for this. I would like to get this done and would appreciate any help. Thanks.
